TRIPOLI, Libya — Libya's union of journalists on Sunday said authorities have arrested 10 reporters who work for a news agency controlled by the son of leader Moammar Gadhafi.
Union head Salma al-Shaab said that security forces detained the six men and four women — including two Egyptians — a day earlier. She said the journalists worked for Libya Press and were arrested for criticizing Libya's leadership.
The news agency is part of the al-Ghad media group belonging to Seif al-Islam Gadhafi, the reformist son of the Libyan leader.
The Interior Ministry did not immediately return calls for comment.
